There are many different types of floor mat systems and sometimes you need a mat for protection. Contamination control mats are the perfect example of this in action. There are many different uses for mats but when you want to avoid contamination in a particular area or the transfer of contaminated materials from one area to the other, these contamination control mats will do the job.
Contamination Control Mats
Contamination control mats will help protect you from equipment failure and similar consequences that come from a controlled environment being exposed. Anti contamination floor mats are designed to be placed inside a no-trip, non-skid frame in an area that is usually attached to the floor and used for wiping the feet before going into a place that needs to remain contaminant-free. They usually have ultra-thin sheets of quality adhesive coated film that are used to remove dirt, debris and more before entering a room or area.
As you probably know, not all mats are created equal and this is why shopping around for your contamination control mats is important. You want to protect your environment from the foot traffic (or wheel traffic of carts). You also want to be sure the mats are being used correctly. They should be placed at the entrance of your controlled environment. Some people also like to use an additional, second set of mats before this one to get that extra protection.
When you get the contamination control mats that are right for you, it’s important to make sure you use them correctly for them to work correctly. So choose the right mat size, make sure you choose the right mat color, and then be sure you position the mat correctly. You want to always have the numbered tabs closest to the clean area so you can remove the sheets in the direction away from the clean room, to further avoid decontamination. You want the contaminated sheet to be peeled away from the clean area.
